Three policemen, two SPO and one Constable have been kidnapped and killed by terrorists in south Kashmir early on Friday morning. The terrorists barged into the houses of four policemen in Kapran village and dragged them out, said the police.
The martyrs are identified as SPO Kuldeep Singh and Firdos Khan and Constable Nisar Ahmed. The terrorists have allegedly warned the policemen and asked them to resign, say police sources.
The bullet ridden bodies of the three security men were found in Shopian near their village.
It is suspected that the militant group Hizbul Mujahideen is behind the abduction and murder of the police personnels. Earlier this week, Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists had put out videos in which they had said policemen should either post their resignations online or prepare to be killed. The home ministry expressed worry about repercussions as the videos floated around in several villages.
